US rearing a killer of Bangabandhu, it is called their behaviour: PM Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has alleged that the BNP founder Ziaur Rahman had allowed the anti-liberation elements to do politics in the country.

She said the culture of human rights violation began after August 15, 1975. Ziaur Rahman brought the collaborators of Pakistani occupation forces to power. Besides, Ziaur Rahman had framed laws to stop the trial of Bangabandhu killers.

The Prime Minister was speaking as the chief guest at the Fifth National Conference of Swadhinata Chikitshak Forum held at Suhrawardy Udyan in the capital on Friday (November 25, 2022) afternoon.

Hasina observed that power started changing hands through illegal killings, coups and conspiracies after the assassination of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his family members in 1975.

The Prime Minister said, “When someone demands justice from me into the killing of his near and dear ones, it seems to me that I had to wait for long 35 years to get justice into the killings of my father, mother and brothers. In spite of it, I express my gratitude to the people of this country that we have been able to try the killers as they had elected us.”

However, Sheikh Hasina said punishment of some of the killers could not be executed yet. Of them, one lives in the United States, one in Canada, two in Pakistan, while the whereabouts of one could not be traced.

Criticising the United States government for sheltering one of the killers, the prime minister said, “The US has been rearing a killer of Bangabandhu. However, it is called their behaviour.”

The prime minister also vowed to bring the Bangabandhu’s fugitive killers back to the country and put them before court. “Our efforts are going on. We are determined to bring them (killers) back to the country and ensure their punishment. I want it at any cost.”
